Question JCW GP Values

I spotted a 2013 JCW GP (#396 of 500, as I recall). Very nice in the ad, but due to my schedule and the recent blizzard, I haven't popped over to look at it up close. Gotta love those MINI GP's though! I believe the ad said around 44k miles for $21,900 (going from memory, but that's pretty close). Is that a good value for a solid car?

Just curious, as I don't need another MINI....oh, but if that had popped up before I ordered my 2015 JCW....I might have been all over it!

Please educate me for those of you with more knowledge of GP's than I have. Good asking price?

Agree they are great although I prefer the Gen1 GP

Although after driving a F56 I'd fine it hard to go back to a R56 it's bad enough getting in my wifes R60

The handling is superb and the power is good for an R series, however, the current JCW will outperform it in most instances and with a few tweaks the power difference is substantially significant. I did not own one, but ran with them in my 2013 R56 JCW and they would outperform it. However, I think my current F56 JCW will out perform them in most instances. Most likely the F series GP will be awesome! You do lose the back seat though which is a drawback for me, and if you don't particularly like gray you are out of luck. Still, they traditionally have been excellent performers.

Very highly regarded by eg evo mag in the uk and are deemed collectible. They command very high second hand prices in the uk!

Surprisingly delighted to have moved to an f54((with a r59 in the fold for fun!)

Well it sold....I don't think it was on the lot more than a few weeks, including a blizzard that had to hold back lookers, like me. #369 of 500 imported. 1 of 2000 made. I never made it over to look at it! I showed it to my wife online & she liked it! I noticed that the car had 4 owners though in 4 years...looked like new with clean car fax! Maybe too many speeding tickets so each prior owner had to sell! Ha! Very tempting little pocket rocket though! No back seat wouldn't bother me...just more room for my spare wheel/tire! In the end (although almost twice the money) my F56 JCW is a better car all around...the GP did have a CD player though! lol!
